A petition was filed before the Delhi High Court on Wednesday, seeking reservation of up to 85 per cent seats in all state government-funded colleges for Delhi domicile students.

NGO Moksha Foundation, in its petition, sought direction to the Centre and the state government to “adopt a new policy for reservation of up to 85 per cent of total seats for Delhi students” in all the 12 colleges that run on government funds.

The PIL mentions a criterion that the reservation would be applicable for students passing their examination from recognised schools located within Delhi from the year 2014-15.

The colleges where the NGO sought reservation include Deen Dayal Upadhaya College, Indira Gandhi Institute of Physical Education, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Maharaja Agrasen College, Shaheed Raj Guru College and Shaheed Sukhdev College. HTC
